Grateful heart.






Just the other day one of our juniors visited us .He had worked with us for just nine months as a junior doctor .A diligent and an earnest child ,he visited us because he wanted to thank us .He got through in his post-graduation entrance exams for CMC,Ludhiana for MS ,surgery.He testified in the church about how his short stint in Lakhnadon had been such a blessing in his spiritual walk with the Lord.I was watching it all in a detatched manner amazed at the gratitude in his heart.
The same day I received a message from one of our young nurses from a non-believing background who had returned to her home state about how she missed the Sunday worship time in my house.During our stint in these places we just do what we are supposed to ,we are not exactly perfect but the Lord in His ultimate grace covers us and walks with us even as we walk with the people whom He places in our charge.
These are the times when I often feel extremely overwhelmed by life as such.There have been times when I have prayed to the Lord that this is all too much for me and yet have carried on in His grace alone.It is in those times when I have felt most blessed by His mighty presence.
Our campus is also going through a time of transition.A lot of comings and goings.The news in the media generally ,is nothing to write home about.In all this something precious stands out in golden letters ,the Word of God ,writing our life stories in the book of life ,frail ,weak beings held up by the grace of our Lord Jesus ,in the Holy spirit before the throne of almighty God.In that,we rejoice ,live and breathe.
